DUBLIN – Australian cricketer Ben Dunk will join the livestream commentary team covering the GS Holding T20I Tri-Series being played at Malahide Cricket Club in Dublin from 15-20 September 2019.
Dunk, who has played five T20 Internationals for Australia, has made a name for himself in Australian domestic and international franchise cricket. He is the fifth-highest run-scorer in the Big Bash League history, and has been the top run-scorer of a season on two occasions in the competition.
He joins a commentary team that features:
• Alan Lewis
• John Kenny
• Garfield Harrison
• Andrew Leonard
The team will be joined by guests during the livestream broadcasts, with coverage starting from 1.20pm every match day. The livestream of the GS Holding T20I Tri-Series will be through the Cricket Ireland Youtube channel, with links going up on Cricket Ireland’s social media channels each day.
Heatley Tector, the Proprietor of HBV Studios who is producing the livestream, said:
“I am absolutely thrilled to have Ben join us for the tri series. As well as being a world-class cricketer who specialises in the T20 format of the game, he also has considerable broadcast experience. His insight into the Tri-Series will be invaluable to our viewers.”
LIVESTREAMING IN 2019
